Kairos Prison Ministry
"I was in prison and you visited me." —Matthew 25:36
What if you had not had friends or family visit for years? What if you had never heard that God love and forgives you? What if you believed that you were totally alone?
Life would be pretty dismal, wouldn't it? That is the experience of many prisoners in our state prisons. Kairos Prison Ministry makes a profound difference in prisoners' lives. Kairos is an international, inter-denominational Christian ministry that serves prisoners by showing them the love and forgiveness of Christ. Prison administrators endorse the program because of the reduction in discipline problems and the lowering of recidivism rates for Kairos attendees.
For more information on how you can help, contact Jim Huitt or watch the video on this page. Thank you for supporting this important ministry.
Bake Cookies for KAIROS
The FPC Kairos Prison Ministry Team participates in four-day ministry programs at prisons in Virginia. Our team and others will be at Deep Meadow Correctional Center, Powhatan County, from September 14 - 17 and need 1,500 dozen homemade cookies to be served during the four-day program and given to all the residents. Let's see if FPC provide 100 dozen??
Cookies should be put in zip lock bags and placed in the freezer in the church kitchen by 5pm September 12. Some cookie recipes can be found at: http://kairos-bkcc.org/sites/kairos/files/documents/Cookie%20Recipes.pdf. (NOTE: VA Dept. of Corrections prohibits cookies with fruit or nuts, or icing, sprinkles or powdered sugar toppings.)
If you are interested in being a Kairos team member in the future or attending a closing ceremony inside the prison, please contact Jim Huitt.
